Rhode Island Governor Orders National Guard Check Points to Protect from New Yorkers

Well, that escalated quickly, and all of a sudden borders mattered to Democrats and their Governors.

[Rhode Island] – Governor Gina Raimondo announced. Starting immediately, anyone coming into the state from New York state will be mandated to self-quarantine for 14 days, the governor said.

“No matter how you come to Rhode Island – bus, car, train, plane – you are ordered to quarantine for 14 days,” Raimondo said. “In my judgement this is the most prudent form of action in light of the crisis.”

Members of the National Guard will be stationed at train and bus stations to gather the contact information of anyone coming in from New York. In addition, the Rhode Island State Police will station troopers at the state border to flag down vehicles with New York license plates. The information collected will be used only for contact tracing by the Rhode Island Department of Health, Raimondo said.

“This is different. This is unusual. This is radical,” Raimondo said. “I don’t want anyone to panic. If anything, Rhode Islanders should breathe a sigh of relief. We are doing things to keep ourselves safe.” (read more)

They aren’t stopping anybody they are explaining the rules on self quarantining
With 211 current (as of 2 PM 3/28) positive tests, the horse has already left the barn it is too late for check points.
The actual number of Americans who are positive are most likely much higher since the Federal government acted so slowly in rolling out test kits and continues to drag it’s feet on testing regardless of what Trump says.
Stay strong America, stay well
